Bachelor of Arts in Social Work

The bachelor of arts in social work major at Fordham University will prepare you to make a meaningful difference in people's lives as a generalist social work practitioner.  Mirroring the strength of our nationally ranked M.S.W. program, our B.A.S.W. degree features a variety of learning experiences: dynamic classes, hands-on fieldwork education, and guidance and support from a faculty adviser.  Our diverse community of compassionate students and faculty round out the stimulating educational environment of the Graduate School of Social Service.

With our B.A.S.W. degree, you'll graduate with the skills and knowledge you'll need to promote human rights, social justice, and individual and community well-being.


  • Prepares you for a career as a generalist social worker in an agency setting
  • Supervised, hands-on fieldwork practicum with a seminar that integrates classroom knowledge with your experiences in the field


  • Open to students matriculated at Fordham College at Lincoln Center, Fordham College at Rose Hill, or Fordham School of Professional and Continuing Studies.  (Rose Hill students must complete another major beyond the B.A.S.W.)

The Graduate School of Social Service is an exciting place to earn your B.A.S.W. and prepare you for a rewarding career as an agent of change.
